Amos 8:12 – They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; They shall run to and from, seeking the word of the Lord, but shall not find it. 

We live in the age of information and knowledge, yet biblical truth is not commonly found. You have the Word of God and it’s crucial to meditate on it, memorize it and seek God through it. The day will come when Bibles will not be easily found. There are nations today where Bible apps do not work on phones. God warns us of the things to come not to scare us, but to prepare the body of Christ. Are you prepared?

Declaration: I will write the word of God upon my heart and set my mind on His truth.


Today, I want to hit a home run revelation into your part of the ballpark. If you’ve got your glove on, you could walk away with a new strategy for your spiritual game plan.

There is a balance that needs to be taught concerning miracles. As much as I love miracles, I understand that a miracle is a short-term solution to a long-term malfunction. Miracles only happen in the most desperate times and places.  

If you are someone who needs a miracle, I certainly believe God has one for you and you should reach for it. The balance to that is this: I believe there is a better and more long-term way God wants you to prosper. Though miracles are powerful, they are not God’s best and His highest way of prospering His people. Read it again.

The children of Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years and witnessed a miracle every day as manna fell from Heaven. The day after they left the wilderness and entered the Promised Land, the miracle of manna ceased. Why?

They had entered in to a whole new set of rules and blessings. You see, there are two main ways the Lord prospers us. The first is “Miracles of Provision.” The second, and much better principle, is called “Seed, Time and Harvest.”

Know this: God wants you to prosper. He would just rather see you mature. Seed, Time and Harvest, aka “work and reward,” is the best way to do that. The alternative isn’t very pretty. 

The only time you need a miracle is when your life, finances, marriage, job, health, or safety is a major malfunction. Don’t wait for a miracle. Get out of your mess by working for the reward.
